Hi, I was wondering if anyone had hiked the Duncan Ridge Trail between GA 60 and slaughter gap recently. I am mainly curious how the trail condictions are once it leaves the Benton MacKaye Trail. Thanks. Mike

How about details on the DRT in general??? I hear it's not as well maintained as the Benton MacKaye Trail. I haven't hiked it for this reason. Is it rumor or truth?

While we are on the subject .... I plan to use the BMT and AT to do the GA loop but lack info on the Duncan Ridge. Can anyone help? Thanks. I plan to hike it in late May 2007 (Memorial Day weekend) and take a week off work with a co-worker.

Tim Homan has a book on the which has a section on both the Benton MacKaye Trail and the Duncan Ridge Trail. If you get the then you have data on the entire route. I included links for each.

I keep hearing about the Duncan Ridge Trail but wondered how well maintained it is? Did you end up hiking it and how did it go? Are there any nice campsites I should know about?

I did three forks to Sarvis Gap the 1st week of October and it was pretty tough. I did about 10 miles of the DRT section in the dark and had very little trouble spotting the blazes with my led head light(I am not recommending to take any hike in the dark for if you were to get off the trail you may be lost for days). BMT has more blazes than the DRT but the DRT has new bright blue nail on blazes...which may or may not still be there when you decide to attempt the challenge. I recommend that you get physically prepared and don't plan to move very quickly. The peaks and valleys will break you down if you don't pace yourself. If you give youself plenty of time, are well prepared and make sure you take in the beauty of the journey then you should be just fine :) I used the trail map from this site and it seemed very accurate. http://www.n2backpacking.com/maps/georg ... %20Map.JPG

Hope you enjoy. Feel free to ask any specific questions. I plan to do the other half eventually. Will let you know how that goes when I attempt it.
